    Well ... I think, for their age, they both look extremely well.

    Maybe you mean "for their lifestyle"..... Keith looks excellent for 150, or two years post-mortem.

    No, I really think that, for being 76, he looks good.

    I mean ... it isn't that long ago that people died in their seventies and it was perfectly normal that they did so. Not reaching eighty was nothing special, the smoking alone took many people well under that age...

    For their lifestyle ... well, maybe even more. But looking a bit deeper - many things are only shortening your lifespan if done under improper conditions, and that, you can avoid if you're rich. Opioides aren't known to cause a decrease of lifespan (except OD'ing them, which, sure, does), it's the conditions in which the most potent ones are often used that impose a real threat onto the user. Mixed with whatever that isn't good for you either, unclear dose, these things are the real danger in them. Being rich helps avoiding this, and therefore, surviving.

    Also - the phase of addiction is, in Keith's case, some 40 years ago. That isn't even true anymore, so to say...

    According to my mortuary major niece, she thinks the secret is both Keith and Willie have already been embalmed.

    apparently Iggy pop was part of an experiment that saw him injected with embalming fluid

    Ah!
    It's not just about living forever, Jackie. The trick is still living with yourself forever.

    LOL.... growing up an adult neighbor was quite the drinker . Sometimes he's come over and in the middle of a sentence he's just close his eyes and doze off . My father would would look at me and always say right then and there in a loud voice ...." that's because the guys brain is pickled in alcohol " ... and then I'd giggle
    Thank for the laugh doc

    That may happen. Not everyone handles this well...

    OTOH, I have a grandaunt, married my oldest directly-related granduncle (oldest brother of my Grandpa, I didn't really know him, died 1986 or 1988 because he feared the surgery that would have aimed at saving him ... he also was a Pervitin-user since WW2, which basically is similar to the meth known today) ... hehe, they met in a hospital towards the end of WW2, and then, somehow, found out there might be a reason to marry.

    She is a moderately dosed, but daily drinker (I think half to whole bottle of wine a day or so), has been for at least 30 years, and she's just fine. She's also 97 years old, so no one would consider her to stop without her intention, which she doesn't have ... why bother with withdrawal effects and all that if you're almost 100 years old? To some people, it seems, it isn't as bad as to others. I'm no priest of sobriety either, I just don't like alcohol.

    + she's the only person I know of who got a car key stolen by a magpie ... had to drive home with someone else to get a replacement.
